I have only been doing Paleo for over 30 days now, but I feel like it's changing everything about the way I eat, see and feel about food. I LOVE food...believe me, I could eat food all day long, and especially if the food is coated in sugar..so going Paleo was going out on a huge limb for me, but I did it and I couldn't be happier!
So how did I get started, and how can YOU?
First of all, if he isn't already, make GOOGLE your new BFF. If I ever have a question, or need a new idea, I google it. I found the Whole9 website, and thought a good place to start would be the Whole30 Challenge. This was really going to help me get started and see if Paleo was for me. I totally recommend you doing this!
Second, read all you can about the Paleo Lifestyle. There are books out there, but honestly, you can find everything online that you need to get started and to stay Paleo. Reading and researching this will help you to know if this is something that you want to try, and that may work for you. I can't say if it will work for you, or if you'll love it or hate it, you have to decide for yourself.
I have links to the right that show you the Paleo sites I frequent. Check those out and see what you can find for yourself there.
Third- Be accountable. I used this blog as well as Instagram to make sure I stayed on track. I love cooking and trying new things, so that part of Paleo was really fun and exciting for me. I loved taking pictures of everything I ate, and along doing this, I found other people just like me, doing just the same thing- sharing real food with others!
Finally, do what is best for YOU. I've only tried a few "diets" in my life, and for those that I've tried, they did not work for my lifestyle. So maybe Paleo will be for you, maybe not, there is really only one way to find out!
Please leave a comment if you have any specific questions on what I did.
